The integration isn’t pretty since you have to install the iCloud app on Windows 11, but after the setup, the Photos app will include a dedicated section for your pictures and videos. This guide will teach you how to connect the Photos app to the iCloud service on Windows 11.

Connect iCloud to Photos app on Windows 11

To connect iCloud to the Photos app, use these steps: Once you connect the Photos app to iCloud, you can access your media from the dedicated “iCloud Photos” tab on the left navigation pane. If you click the “All Photos” tab, your iCloud media will appear alongside your local and OneDrive media. If the attribute feature is enabled, each photo will have an iCloud icon to let you know the file’s location.

The integration is available starting with the Photos app version 2022.31110.2008.0 or higher for devices running the latest version of Windows 11. Microsoft says that the new feature should reach everyone by December. However, you can always check for updates by going to Microsoft Store > Library and clicking the Get updates button.
